First, she got on the honor roll (again).
Moved on-post where "all" of her friends are and got asked to the Valentine's Day Dance (by a boy).
She turned 11!
Got really cool birthday gifts like tickets to Disneyland Paris (for April) and a second earring hole.
And topped it all off with an owl-themed birthday party at Yabadoo's.
I don't think parenting could be any easier with a kid like Isabelle. She's just a loving, easy-going girl who's full of compassion and ambition with the perfect amount of smarty-pants and silly. Sure, she automatically hates anything that I like only because I like it, but I've heard that's "normal" for a tween girl, and I'll gladly take the frustration with the awesomeness. She's pretty great.
